When Dynamic Content transitions are applied to your slide, the actual transition occurs on all areas of the slide except the backgrounds. This makes your content move independently on and off the screen. PowerPoint provides seven different transition effects within the Dynamic Content category. Do experiment with these options for direction and timing to create some great-looking presentations.

Within PowerPoint, you can apply transitions to your slides and later tweak them aplenty. You can adjust the duration and timings of any transition, and even add a sound that will play while the slide transition happens. In addition, you can also play with some more options providing more control over the transition style applied to the slide. These are all placed in a single broad category called Effect Options. These Effect Options, as the very name indicates are related to the individual transition effects, and options may differ for each effect.

Adding sound effects to slide transitions in PowerPoint is a decision that needs so much thought because a sound playing with every slide transition can unnecessarily distract your audience. Having said that, there are occasions when a sound effect can be wisely applied to PowerPoint slide transitions, especially with picture slides, or maybe even a chime sound for just one slide?
